>HE'S MYSTERIOUS Those girls with briefcases don't do it for me. My favorite personality on the hit game show is seen only as a silhouette behind glass above the set. He's the Banker (played by an actor named Peter Abbay).

... TEMPTING AS SIN Howie Mandel is all beaming as host, but the action freezes when the Banker phones him, offering players money to quit. It's the dramatic high point.

... AND A WONDERFUL ROLE MODEL Imagine Simon Cowell sealed off in a glass cage, phoning his judgments to Ryan Seacrest. Chills!
